For me, after the marathon each year, I reflect on what I want to achieve. After all my marathon training has been a major focus for 20 weeks out of the whole year. My reflection still a work in progress, but I want to maintain compassion during the process.
For instance, I did not applying for the 2020 Boston Marathon due to its rolling admission and my qualification time is less than 5 minutes faster than the standards. Nevertheless, I would count my health and fitness goals as accomplished.
Whatever my future goals will be, they will be energetic, stretched goals, and improving myself in someways.
Have a nice week!
